Lebiasina bimaculata is a rare and little known Characin from South America. Belonging to the same family as the small and peaceful Pencilfish of the genus Nannostomus, there is little to no info about their care is available in the hobby. They grow to about 4" and seem quite tolerant of water conditions, although in the wild they would come from softer and mildly acidic waters. These are a semi-agressive to agressive, loose schoaling fish that will gladly rip apart smaller fish - headstanders, other larger characins, large robust catfish, and large cichlids seem to make for the best tankmates. These mini monsters have been compared to wolfish; indeed, they are a nice compact alternative for those who want a "monster" fish without a monster tank!
